Crockpot Chicken Soft Tacos

After last night's dinner debacle, I turned to a tried and true recipe that I copied from a friend on a parenting board several years ago. It is super simple to make! I substituted the taco seasoning package with the homemade taco seasoning that I made a few weeks ago with the nachos. I also made Jamie Deen's fresh guacamole after seeing him make it on his new show. My oldest son helped make the guacamole. He tried his hand at squeezing the lime and also peeling the avocado. It took us less than 10 minutes to put together.

Crockpot Chicken Soft Tacos:
(makes 6-8 servings)

1 pkg of boneless, skinless chicken breast (~3lbs)
1 can of black beans drained & rinsed
1 can diced tomatoes with jalapeƱo
1 pkg taco seasoning
Shredded Mexican cheese
Sour cream
Pico de Gallo
Corn tortillas

Place chicken breast in crockpot. Mix the diced tomatoes and taco seasoning together in a small bowl and pour over the chicken. Lastly, place the black beans on top. Cover and cook on low for 10-12 hours. About a 1/2 hour prior to serving, shred chicken and stir. serve chicken mixture on corn tortillas. Top with Pico de Gallo, cheese and sour cream if desired.
